Timeless Love

Mother Falls In Love At 82
Dedicated to Minnie Alva (mom)

Submitted by Frances

My mother moved back to Seattle in July of '99 for the fifth time. She loves the Pacific Northwest, especially after living in the Southwest all her life. But mother is feeling lonely after all these years of being a single person. As long as I can remember, and I am 43, she has always been single. Friends of my sister meet my mother and think she is a fun and delightful person. They want her to meet their dad, because he, too, is lonely and wants to meet someone his age. So, mom and John meet.

It was slow at first, but with daughter's push, she asks John if he would like to go out with her and me and he says, "Of course." So, we invite John out to breakfast one Saturday, then everything starts happening thereafter. John and mom are getting married in February. It didn't take John very long to discover that he was in love with Minnie and he just turned 86 and popped the question last November. So, at their age, times-a-wasting.

Yesterday, I was at John's and mom's apartment, which is coming together beautifully, and asked where they wanted to spend their honeymoon. Mother said San Diego because she knows someone there and, since they don't have a whole lot of money (they both live off of social security and some retirement funds), I guess she feels that's what they can afford. John quickly says, "Oh, no. We're going to Hawaii."

Now John has been to Hawaii several times. In fact, he lived there while he was in the Army. Mother has always dreamed of going to Hawaii for as long as I can remember. I told mother, "Oh, mom, go to Hawaii for your honeymoon. I'll give you some money and I'll tell the others (mother has 9 children) to pitch in. At 82 (soon to be 83 in March 2000), you better go now, 'cause you may never get to go and, not only that, who ever thought that you would be getting married at 82."

John and mom are very happy and in love. They are lucky, but would be even luckier if they won a free trip to Hawaii for their honeymoon. Thanks for taking the time to read my story. Aloha!
